Situation: It just came across the news it has been discovered that a recently launched satellite from North Korea is believed to be armed with nuclear weapons. Governments across the world demand it to be dismantled or destroyed. Talks of increased “sanctions” and “pressure” flood the airwaves and South Korea threatens military action.
3 hours after the initial news North Korea activates the satellite and launches two missiles as it passes over the United States. There is no news of this. The US military has no time to launch a counter.
At 01:20am EST the two missiles detonate over two areas. The first 150 miles over Wyoming. The second approx 150 miles over Cincinnati, OH.
An electromagnetic pulse covers 90% of the continental United States disabling 75% of electronic devices. The specifics over which devices were affected and which were not is not consistent. A variety of factors cause most modern vehicles to become disabled while others remain unaffected. This goes for all electronic devices.
Communication is extremely minimal as the vast majority of radio and television stations are non-operational. There is no Internet and no phone service of any kind. While many people are sleeping and will not discover that a crisis is at hand until morning.
You are wide awake and understand what has happened.
Here is the question: What do you do?
